Drivers Mega

 admin

The package provides the installation files for Arduino Mega 2560 Board USB Driver version 1.1.1.0 If the driver is already installed on your system, updating (overwrite-installing) may fix various. Just got my Mega Zero today! I'll upload drivers once I unbox it:) UPDATE: Just got everything set up aaand. It didnt come with any windows drivers, only MAC drivers, but the manual clearly says that there should be windows drivers there too.

I finally got around to installing the TMC2208 stepper drivers into my AnyCubic i3 Mega the other day. I bought a set of FYSETC TMC2208 v1.2 stepper drivers ages ago, but never got around to actually installing them.

2020 Update: if you do this yourself, you should probably use FYSETC TMC2209 V3.0 drivers instead of the TMC2208’s I’ve used.

In addition, David Ramiro, who’s been working on the customized Marlin firmware for the AnyCubic i3 Mega has a BETA release branch for Marlin 2.0.x, which also has a precompiled HEX file for using the TMC2208 drivers. The coil wiring on the TMC2208 is reversed, so it’s necessary to either reverse your connectors, or install a firmware which has them swapped already.

Installation is quite straightforward, just literally follow the guide. However there is one step that is not described, and it’s a doozy.

On my board, which is a Trigorilla 1.0 8-bit based on an ATmega2560, on a 03 series AnyCubic, there are six stepper connectors; X,Y,Z,Z,E0,E1. Under older Marlin firmware and the stock firmware, the cables were connected like so;

E1Left Vertical Stepper

This… doesn’t work with newer firmware releases. If you try and use this, the left vertical stepper is not driven and this is very bad.

The solution is simple, once I figured it out. Pull the cable that was plugged into E1 and plug it into the second Z port (the bottom one).

This works just fine like this. The results are pretty great. The TMC2208’s are much, much quieter, and appear to produce less ringing and other artefacts when printing.

You should be able to connect up UART control for the drivers so that you can adjust the drive voltage and so-on, and you can also adjust them simply with the potentiometer on them, but I haven’t done that. I’ve just installed them as stock. I might mess with that another time when I have the back off again.

Trend is a general tendency or direction of a development or change over time. It can be called a megatrend if it occurs at global or large scale. A trend may be strong or weak, increasing, decreasing or stable. There is no guarantee that a trend observed in the past will continue in the future.

Megatrends are the great forces in societal development that will very likely affect the future in all areas over the next 10-15 years. Megatrend is also defined as a large, social, economic, political, environmental or technological change that is slow to form. Once in place, megatrends influence a wide range of activities, processes and perceptions, both in government and in society, possibly for decades. They are the underlying forces that drive trends. (i.e. aging population)

A trend – in contrast – is an emerging pattern of change likely to impact large social groups or even state government and require a response. “Trends are experienced by everyone and often in more or less the same contexts insofar as they create broad parameters for shifts in attitudes, policies and business focus over periods of several years that usually have global reach. What is interesting about trends is that normally most players, organizations or even nations cannot do much to change them – they are larger than the power of individual organizations and often nation states as well” (e.g. urbanization, demographic change)

Drivers are defined as developments causing change, affecting or shaping the future. A driver is the cause of one or more effects, e.g. increasing sugar intake in our daily food consumption is a driver for obesity.

An issue is a controversial, debatable or “hot” topic or an innovative state action. (i.e. block chain)
